Houston, TX. - Even though Houston is the fourth-largest city in the country, the metro area still enjoys a lower cost of living than many other parts of the country.
However, the cost of housing, especially rentals, has gone up considerably in recent years. For example, the average cost to rent an apartment in in the city is now over $1,300 a month. Depending on your financial circumstances, that might be unaffordable.
Luckily, renters in Houston can still find apartments available for under $800 a month.
